Kenzo Napa: finally a restaurant that understands me!

Only a ten minute walk from The Inn On First is a fine dining Japanese restaurant called Kenzo Napa.  Tucked away in a corner, away from the hustle and bustle of 1st and Main Streets, I couldn’t understand why they chose this location…until I dined there. First, a short history lesson.   Did you know that there is a Buddhist tradition that believes enlightenment comes through food and dining and not through meditation? Think of enlightenment as simply being present to the NOW, that place where you are completely in your self and yet you are connected to more than [...]

Welcome, Leo, to your new pack!

We tried working with rescue organizations to find a new dog.  Calvin, our 12-year old miniature schnauzer, needs a companion, but currently there was no good fit for us.  Either the dog(s) were too old, or needed to be sole dog in the house, or was not good with people, etc.  Calvin has never been alone before and he keeps a close eye on us as the other two are gone.  I have to admit, it is rather strange walking one dog when you are accustomed to having three on leashes. Well, a mother and daughter, Tahleen and Armine, came [...]

Farewell Hugo Boss and Maxwell Black……

Hugo's renal failure coincided with Maxwell's stomach cancer getting the best of him.  We loved them dearly and they gave so much back to us in return.  With gratitude for the gift of these two lovely dogs who made us such better human beings, this video is our memorial to them, a testament of gratitude and love. Farewell Hugo and Maxwell Thank you, Hugo Boss and Maxwell Black, for loving us so well.  Thank you for the gift of life you brought to our guests and to our remaining dog, Calvin Klein.  He misses you both as much as we [...]

The Cycle of Life- we celebrate the closure of Maxwell’s life with us here…

It is always with a heavy heart to hear your dog has an inoperable, untreatable stomach tumor, that he only has weeks to live.  Yet in the cycle of life that we celebrate at The Inn On First we will not allow his light to go out without notice.  He is still with us for now, so if you do happen to visit, see a scrawny dog with floppy ears and a wagging tail, well that would be him.  Maxwell, aka, Mr. Sunshine.  He is blind in one eye, so you need to be sure to wave your hand in [...]
